We FINALLY got what we've been waiting for! Warm, blue, clear waters to practice our freediving and just float around relaxing 😌 
Though it was raining, we loved every minute of it. 

This is our happy place, what's yours?

We made it to Gibraltar!! It's even suprised us how fast we've got here 😂😂 we're feeling super accomplished and ready for a few days exploring. We also reached a bit of a milestone today, 1500 nautical miles we've now sailed. Not bad for two absolute noobs 🙃

You really can do so much more than you ever expected if you just get out and do it. This time last year we'd only done short sails around the Solent, now we've gone from England to Gibraltar just the two of us on a 28ft sailboat. Anything is possible in this crazy world we live in 😅

No matter how many whales, dolphins, sharks or turtles I see, it never gets old (clearly 😂). Making the most of our time in West Oz with @brinkleydavies (videos coming soon) before we leave Australia for our next big stint. We just got Darwin’s all clear to leave the country too hehe his passport photo is hilarious. 
Ps happy birthday @chippawilson 🕺🏼

Lightning strike on an ungrounded, deck-stepped mast. Ground your masts! Especially if you're in a lightning prone area. This guy's chances were worse as he's not near other sailboats, so is the most conductive target for a strike.

We hadn't planned on heading up the Guadiana river, but after chatting with @sailing_amanaki decided to tag along with them and check it out. 

It was so much more than we were expecting. An incredible mix of lush green landscape and what looked like the wild west! Sailing up the river felt so calm and peaceful. We also had to go under our first bridge which was nerve wracking 😬

We picked up a mooring ball in Laranjeiras, and can't recommend this spot highly enough. Ran by Scott (a lovely Scottish guy who can't do enough to help you), it's picturesque, had a sky full of stars at night and water warm enough to swim in. Heaven!

We anchor as often as we can, but at times, anchoring is prohibited in efforts to preserve and/or restore marine life down below🐠, and we have to pick up a mooring instead.

Dockwa is the OpenTable of the boating world, allowing boaters to easily reserve their spot at marinas with the click of a button, all in minutes. Forget the days of old school pen and paper booking 📝 that would take up 48 hours to complete! 🕰 

Dockwa is available at over 800 marinas across the US 🇺🇸 

To sign up, go to Dockwa.com and click ‘Sign Up’ in the top right corner. You can also download the Dockwa app📱on the Apple App Store or Google Play
